Perched on the hillsides overlooking the Rio Tejo, and in close proximity to gorgeous Southern-European beaches,  Portugal's capital city is a heady mix of ancient ruins, eccentric street life, and colonial cathedrals.  Lisbon is a step into Europe with a laid-back vibe.

THE EXPERIENCE

What is it actually like to live in Lisbon? Where can one month take you? In Lisbon, you are immersed in history the moment you step outside. Together, the group will take a Portuguese language crash course, will embark on tours of historic downtown, as well as of Lisbon’s famed food, wine pastries, and explore the country on a day trip to nearby beaches and/or castles. The best way to get a true taste of local life in Lisbon, however, is through skills-based volunteering. Set up a chat with the team to learn more about ‘a day in the life’.

Marlaina
The lifestyle change in Lisbon was really nice - just taking a second to step back from the go-go-go culture of the United States. You can relax and stroll the streets and I’ll take that mindset back with me.
— Marlaina, Senior Manager of Strategic Partnerships
Joining Venture with Impact is truly about the experience and doing meaningful work - the experience of being in a different city and traveling with a group of like-minded individuals who also have a digital nomad lifestyle.
— Linda Bun, Digital Marketing Consultant
